Does the pet stress out when inside the cabin?
Using our unique technology we are able to lower the stress on pets compared to traditional bathing due to the fact that we do not use a restraining system and there is no stranger restraining or holding the pet. Also our unique patented nozzle system will provide a hydro-massage shower that will relax the pet and increase circulation which is very beneficial.

Combining the talents of director Michael Murphy with a group of skilled emerging actors from
Come watch and laugh as the life of a relentlessly optimistic woman falls to tattered pieces. In just under 60 minutes, Domestic explores what happens when the painful longing for personal happiness grows to monstrous proportions.
